I know this gpu sucks but I'm getting some money rounded up for a 770 but in the meantime would overclocking help? Thank you!

Yes, just watch the temps closely when OC'ing and depending on how much you OC you will probably see 3-10 fps gain in games.

It can depend on what GTX 460 you have but most of them are very good overclockers. I had ( still have in a box ) an EVGA GTX 460 1GB that was factory overclocked to 763-1526-3800 from the 675-1350-3600 of a stock card. I was able to further overclock the card to 820-1640-4000. With that overclock up to about early 2013 when the new 'next gen' games started launching I could literally max every game but Metro 2033 at 1920 x 1080.

You could also add a second card in Sli depending on if you have motherboard support for Sli and a sufficient power supply. You will still be limited by the 1GB of VRAM though. Most newer games just need more especially at higher settings.

what exactly did you set everything to?

You need a program like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision. They are pretty much self explanatory. Go slow and test carefully.`
